North Whitehall Township
Lehigh County, Pennsylvania
SSM prepared construction drawings for the half mile rails to trails project along the former Ironton Railroad right-of-way. The project connected the existing Ironton Rail-Trail already established in Coplay Borough and Whitehall Township. SSM prepared construction drawings and submitted a Joint Permit application to the PADEP for the conversion of a railroad bridge into a mulit-use bridge across the Coplay Creek.
The trail was improved with compacted gravel and was funded in part by a PADOT Alternative Transportation (TEA21) Grant.
SSM also assisted the Township during the construction phase of the project.
